Jeremy Clarkson’s insightful description of what is happening to the hills of Wales comes as a very welcome change to the normal doublespeak that is spoken when renewable energy is mentioned these days.
As he wrote in the Sunday Times a couple of weeks ago: “In Wales every single south or westerly facing escarpment is being smothered in wind farms. Giant tubular bird mincers that whir and moan 24 hours a day and eventually, after a year or so, produce just enough energy to light up Mrs Llewellyn’s bedside lamp.”
Welcome Jeremy and all readers of your column to the land of the oppressed.
